ANTI-AGING/ WOMEN & MEN’S HEALTH
As we age, we experience many physical and emotional changes that were once just a part of life. Today, thanks to the advancement in medicine and, specifically, compounding, the effects of those changes are dramatically decreased for an overall increase in quality of life.
The following are just a few of the needs met by LowCountry Compounding Pharmacy for anti-aging therapies:
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
- Compounding pharmacists are meeting the needs of peri-menopausal and menopausal women and men (Andropause) by use of bio-identical hormones. These hormones are appealing to patients because they help to mend a hormonal imbalance with hormones that are identical to those produced in the human body.
- A compounding pharmacist can tailor a hormone regimen, which mimics what a female’s body has been doing for the past 50 years or so. All women are not the same; therefore, a compounding pharmacist can add value by preparing the medication to “fit” the patient with the appropriate dosage strength and form. For male patients, supplementation of the basic hormone testosterone has shown to be an effective treatment for most men experiencing Andropause.
- The compounding pharmacist, working in triad with the patient and their healthcare provider, can start and maintain bio-identical hormone replacement. Hormones can be placed in a variety of dosage forms including: capsule; topical creams, suppositories and sublingual troches or lozenges. As the patient works with their physician and compounding pharmacist, they can choose the dosage route and strength that is most beneficial and pleasing to them.
